Moss & Allen bonded over bullies

Supermodel Kate Moss became friends with Lily Allen when she rescued the pop star from a gang of bullies at Britain's Glastonbury music festival.

The unlikely pair has developed a close relationship over the years, with the Smile singer recently spotted on holiday with the catwalk beauty in the south of France.

Allen has now revealed how they first met - Moss saved her from a vicious attack by a group of girls while she was partying at Glastonbury several years ago.

Allen says, "These girls were beating me up and she was the only person who stood in and said, 'Leave her alone, you're being bullies.'

Allen's Amputation Fears After Fall

Los Angeles, September 3: LILY ALLEN was terrified she would be left paralysed after taking a nasty tumble during her recent world tour.

The Smile hitmaker fell over last month (Aug09) while enjoying a night out with friends mid-way through her European jaunt.

As she tried to walk off the injury, she realised it was much more serious than she first thought, as she couldn't stand up.

The pain was so intense she feared the worst - and even worried her legs would need to be amputated.

She says, "It was really the most painful thing ever. It was really horrible. I had one of my security guys with me, and he said he turned around and just saw these two feet sticking into the air.
